5 Steps To Planning Your Dream Contemporary Wedding

September 28, 2017 Pink Lady Julie

There are countless different themes for weddings, but one that will always be fresh and unique is a contemporary wedding. What is considered contemporary changes every year! Currently, the trend of an airy, minimalistic design that incorporates white, gold, and blush, is very in and gives weddings a really modern feel. The right venue is very important for pulling this look off, and we think that the FedEx Event Center at Shelby Farms Park is the perfect choice for your contemporary wedding!

 

1. Choose Your Colors

For a super modern look, choose colors that are soft and light, like the palette seen above. If you’re curious about what colors are the most popular, you can always look to Pantone’s Color of the Year! In 2016, they actually had two colors; Rose Quartz, a dusty pink color, and Serenity, a light blue. The 2017 Color of the Year is Greenery, a very natural looking green. Picking one of these colors, or even all of them, to use in your wedding color palette is sure to give your wedding an extra current appearance!

2. …and Dress in Those Colors!

If you love the idea of having Rose Quartz in your wedding color palette, but aren’t sure if you’d like to give up your white gown for a blush wedding dress, consider choosing blush bridesmaids dresses! They are gorgeous, and blush goes beautifully with all skin tones. For an extra modern flair, give your bridal party the opportunity to each pick a different style dress!

3. Book the Perfect Venue

We love this grand exit with the view of the amazing venue in the background!
